Big Bear Hug by Nicholas Oldland
2009-09 – Hardcover
Kids Can Press
Okay, here’s another one of those books that’s utterly irresistible! The bear hugging the tree on the cover is the hint. If you don’t like hugging then you might just as well walk away from this one. And that means I won’t be giving you hugs in the store any time soon! Pity.
But if you’re open to the concept of hugging, and the deeper philosophical meanings herein, THEN have I got a book for you! This is a charmer. The Bear loves to hug: moose, bird, beaver and yes, trees! But the Bear faces a dilemma when a human comes to the forest to chop down one of the trees. Marggie and I loved this book.
